Medical devices are notoriously vulnerable to cyberattacks because security is often an afterthought when the devices are designed and maintained by the manufacturer. Considering the lack of guidance around medical device security, healthcare providers have done what they could to secure the systems. Typical approaches usually involve legacy security technologies that neither adequately protect the devices nor scale in a way that can be managed by the network and security teams.
Read this whitepaper to understand how Palo Alto Networks security platform provides best-in-class security for medical devices in a healthcare environment. It outlines several architectural options along with pros and cons to help find the right balance of security, management effort and ROI.
